Abbott Point ‘worst possible’ for environment

Mark Solomon and Mark Willacy write in the ABC online (23.12.14): The Queensland Government has known for more than two years that the site where it proposes to dump millions of tonnes of dredge spoil at Abbot Point was the worst of seven possible options for port expansion from an environmental point of view. … But its consultants warned: “However, the West Site is considered the least desirable from an environmental and approvals perspective as it will result in the greatest impact on the Caley Valley Wetland and Cultural Heritage values of Abbot Point”.’
